Trivia

Jean-François Richet and his team had the choice to shoot in Prague, a city whose streets resemble Parisian streets and interesting in terms of cost. But the director, supported by the producers Eric and Nicolas Altmayer, did not want to shoot in this city. He therefore finally put his cameras in Ile-de-France. See more »
